1975 Porsche 914 Appearance Group description
I purchased this 914 1.7 Liter in August of 1983 with my brother. Depending on where the car was stored, the title changed hands between us. In the mid 80’s we decided the car needed more power. We installed a 3.8 Liter Buick Turbo motor. The turbo had too much lag, so the turbo was removed, pistons replaced, new camshaft with roller rockers were installed. The motor adapter plate and custom radiator are made by Renegade Hybrids.
I have considered buying a nice motor and converting the car back to factory 4 cylinder. With the radiator in place, maybe a Subaru STI conversion? I need to stop with new project ideas, I don’t have time or space.
With 30+ years of ownership, countless parts have been replaced and many thousands of dollars spent. I have over $23k in receipts.
The brake fluid was flushed 30 years ago and replaced with Silicone DOT5 to keep moisture out. The car starts and runs, does not overheat. The tires are new. No radio or speakers are included.
The wheels are not authentic Fuchs alloys. They are manufactured by American Racing.
Why have I kept this car so long? It was my first car. Why am I selling it? I have too many cars and not enough space.
If at all possible, I would highly recommend seeing this car in person if possible.
